A Forbidden romance that takes you on a journey with Helen and Mr roberts and although fiction you just feel that this is happening somewhere in the world with two hearts and two souls as you are made aware through Teach me Dirty that the pull can be very real.
Mr Roberts the teacher and Mr Roberts the man rarely cross paths. They don't need to. They've never needed to. Until Now. Until Her.
Mark is Helen's Art teacher and not only did Helen have a crush on My Roberts from the age of 12 with the help of her friend Lizzie she plucked up the courage to make her fantasy into reality.
This isnt a seedy read, yes it has very hot intimate moments that Jade West always delivers well, its a story about two people fighting the desire to be with one another until it's time to give up the fight.
Told in dual povs with a steady pace drawing you into the thoughts,feelings and actions of the characters, it's emotional ,heartwarming, sad at times and creates heart pounding reactions at the same time and a very different style for Jade West from previous books.
You can sense the age difference in the characters although you know Helen is 18, the immaturity and naivety of Helen shows in some of the things she says, her conversations with her best friend Lizzie and you can tell the age of Mark through his maturity in the situation with his calmness and reasoning.
Lizzie: "You fucked him?"
Helen: "Twice and a half"
Lizzie: "How is that even possible?"
Helen "Well I sucked him off. Does that count as a half?"
lizzie: "I guess that counts"
A student teacher romance that is moving with a real feel and I don't say that about a lot of books I read and delivered sensitively and brilliantly.

They tell me it’s unhealthy, just a stupid crush. They tell me it’s infatuation, and will never come to anything. Never mean anything.
Because what would I know, right?
I haven’t even finished school. I’m just a silly little girl.
And no little girl should want the things I want from him.
No little girl should have the thoughts I have…
But they’re wrong.
I really do love Mr Roberts.
I love Mr Roberts because he’s the most amazing man, the most amazing artist, the most amazing teacher that could ever have existed.
And what if… just what if Mr Roberts wants me, too?
What if Mr Roberts really does want to Teach Me Dirty?
